Shanghai - London, two months
London - Guiyang,China (via siberia in winter) 1 month
3~5 month for a single trip would have been better...

Impressive. Why didn't you drive through the Balkans instead of over the Adriatic Sea?

probably because the ferry from Greece to Italy is really cheap. some 50€ or so.

Because by ferry could save me much effort for more visas...We managed to get eight visas for this trip, which had already made us exhausted

I can finally add the Netherlands to my list of countries .

I have been to the Netherlands many times, but this is the first time I have ever driven there.

Definitely a positive driving experience overall.

The roads are very good, the signposting is easy to follow (I can read Dutch, more or less) and there aren't too many loony drivers. I did see someone take a roundabout so fast in a 1970s DAF that he actually threw the rear end.

My only gripe is that part of the A27 was completely closed for roadworks, forcing me to take a long detour. I guess that if I was Dutch I would have known about this in advance. Coming back we took a different route and avoided the closure altogether. I've never seen a completely closed stretch of motorway in any other country, except maybe rarely at night.

The A27 closure was on all VMS's in almost half the country, but you need to know Dutch to understand those.

As I said, if I was Dutch, I would undoubtedly have known about it. It's one of the hazards of being a tourist.

Updated my old map:



Blue are roads driven, red are places I stayed overnight.

As much as I have driven in Europe, so little have I driven in the US:

Germany

I took the first road trip of 2016, a 2041 kilometer trip through 9 states in Germany.

I completed A14, A19 and A71, bringing the total of German Autobahns driven to 11,393 km out of 12,989 km (87.71%)

I haven't driven on many new roads lately. I've been to Belgrade since my last update, a bit of Slovenia and its neighbors... I was also in SW Turkey two months ago:

drives drafted in google mymaps

I constructed my driving maps in Google mymaps -- fun but limiting in some ways too... I would post links but I'm not allowed to until I post 10 more posts :\
